Giant’s Stairs Trail Is Less Than A Mile But The Ocean Views Will Take You Far, Far Away

Every hike in Maine is a beautiful experience, whether muddling through a bog, making your way through the forest, or looking out over the ocean. But the ones we’re loving the most these days offer great views and the salty air that we’ve come to associate with being in Maine. If you’re looking for more ways to get closer to the water you’ll want to head to Bailey Island to explore this rocky route.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Giant’s Stairs Trail can be accessed throughout the year, but always take care when navigating in wet or snowy conditions. Rocks and even the ground can become quite slippery. If you love adventuring with your pup you’ll love that they can come too, just be sure to keep them on a leash. To learn more about the route check out alltrails.com or Maine Trail Finder. You can also check out the official Harpswell town page for more information.

While you’re in the area you should plan some extra time to explore beyond the trail. Consider visiting the Cribstone Bridge, a remarkable spot in Maine that everyone should visit at least once.
